FYI: As of a few minutes ago, I received the following response from TEA as to why student scores were not posted as of yet:
Yes, the score rollout begins today for grades 3-8. The vendor has until the very end of the day to post the scores, so please keep checking back with the website into the late afternoon and evening. They definitely should be posted by early AM tomorrow. Thank you.”
Attention parents of students who ride Snoopy bus:
We were just informed that due to road construction, Snoopy will be running behind this afternoon. Please expect a 10-15 delay for students to arrive at home.
Our once a year fundraiser kicked off last Thursday, September 29th, and will extend through Thursday, October 13th. This has always been a successful fundraiser for our campus, as the funds raised help provide much needed items that extend beyond the campus budget. I am truly grateful for the support we have received in the past, and look forward to what this year brings!
I would like to take this opportunity to let you know what big ticket items I was able to purchase with last year’s fundraising efforts:
- Hokki stools for every classroom (3-5 per room)
- iPads and Osmos kits for the math teachers
- Motorized screen in the cafeteria for presentations (projector donated for free)
- Whiteboards for classrooms
- New whiteboard tables for one classroom
- New materials for our literacy library
- Bouncy houses for student incentives
If this year’s fundraising efforts prove fruitful, my main focus is looking to continue to buy more alternative seating and update learning spaces for our students in their classrooms and the library.
Your support is imperative to making this a success, so thank you for all you are willing to do to help our campus!
It is that time of the year when summertime is beginning to wind down, most of student registration is behind us, and excitement is filling the air with the thought of the new school year approaching. I hope everyone had an amazing summer filled with enjoyable times, incredible memories, and some much needed relaxation. It is hard to believe that in just a few short weeks our building will be filled with students and staff that are ready to embark upon the 2014-2015 school year.
Our exceptional staff has been enthusiastically preparing for opening day to ensure that our children have an unbelievable year. The custodial staff has been working day and night to clean and beautify our school; our maintenance staff has been working on remodeling projects and installing new security measures; our office staff has been organizing and preparing materials that keep the school running smoothly; and our teachers and teacher aides have been in all summer setting up their classrooms for the first day! The entire staff shares the goal to create a safe, clean, nurturing and empowering environment for our children and they have definitely been successful in achieving that goal!
On a personal note, I want to express how excited I am to begin this year as principal of White Oak Intermediate. I’m looking forward to getting to know many new names and faces along the way. By working together, we can make this an exceptional year!
